comeback trail Uday Kiran in a joyful mood

Actor Uday Kiran says he is sticking to what is commercially viable in roles in his new films. Two of his films are scheduled for release soon. During his recent visit to the city to inaugurate the Moser Baer franchisee outlet Movies ‘N’ Music here, he said the two films would hit the screen soon but they were not being released simultaneously.

The two films are ‘Lakshmiputrudu’ and “Viyyalavari Kayyalu’. In the second film he co-stars with Srihari who’s playing his trademark benevolent big brother roles delivered smash hits ‘Nuvvustanate Nenoddantana’ and ‘Dhee.’

Uday Kiran’s debut film ‘Chitram’ and ‘Manasanta Nuvve’ that followed became runaway hits turning him a teenage heartthrob.

Asked whether he was playing the lover boy again, tousle-haired Uday Kiran, dressed in faded jeans and black-dotted shirt and sporting his winsome, dimpled smile, said he would not stick to any image but do what was viable.

He was all praise for veteran director K. Balachander who directed him in the Prakash Raj-produced bilingual ‘Abaddham.’ “It’s my good fortune to work with a great like Balachander,” he said, releasing the DVD of the film.

The actor gushed about his love for Visakhapatnam and its people. “It’s a nice place and reminds him of the shooting for ‘Manasanta…’ and ‘Sriram.’ It was always tempting to come to Visakhapatnam and people were quite good here,” he said. He lauded the efforts of Moser Baer in the field of entertainment saying they were doing lot of good to the film industry. By bringing out film CDs and DVDs at affordable price, they were hitting piracy hard.
